Which one should I register for?

The standard GovTEAMS service meets most people's daily collaboration needs while supporting secure sharing of information up to OFFICIAL:Sensitive. The standard GovTEAMS service is a low cost, fully functional service that has over 110,000 registered users, providing you with the broadest possible reach to APS colleagues and external stakeholders.

You should register for the standard GovTEAMS service unless you have been otherwise directed, or have a specific requirement to share Protected information.

PROTECTED GovTEAMS is a new and emerging service that provides high levels of protection for those needing to share PROTECTED information. PROTECTED GovTEAMS applies security-based usage restrictions and also uses additional, more costly Office 365 functionality to protect your information. As a result, significantly higher licencing fees and subscription charges will apply.

Only register for PROTECTED GovTEAMS if you have been specifically requested to do so, or have a specific requirement to share protected information with your stakeholders.
